on an academic track. >> i belong to a congregation that traditionally have been educators. there was a time when we were teaching grade school, high school, a few people in college. but i, as it were came of age right at the end of vatican two and one of the things that we realized was we needed sisters prepared theologically to think about our own life as well as to teach. so i was sent to study theology. and as we say the rest of history. i've been doing it ever since. but all of us are educated, if you want to put it in term of of academics for whatever we want to do. we're not all teachers in the sense of being in the classroom somewhere. although a fair number of us are. so we're all engaged in preaching the gospel, most of us through some form of helping other people to come to understand the faith and practices and live it better. so it might bun usual that i'm teaching at the graduate level in theology. but the teaching part of it the academic part of it is not. >> it's been there. how many sisters if your order. >> about 400. how many nuns are there in the united states? >> that's very

board of education is sparking a fire storm affecting every florida school. this week officials released a plan setting different expectations for students of different races. for example, the plan calls for 90% of asian students to be at or above grade level reading in 2018 compared to 74% of black students. similar standards apply to math. the school board aims to improve performance of k through 12 students. parents worry the students won't be held in the same standards like they were in the real world. welcome to you. i also want to note that the state's education commissioner agreed to come on but declined late yesterday saying she had a prior commitment. so do you think the plan is racist. >> i don't know if i would call the plan racist. we need to call hout the board of education for making a concession that really just reinscribes our perceptions about race from the past the problem with this particular set of bempbl marks is it mixes concession that essentially some groups will not perform as others when they really need a cohesive statewide benchmark that cuts across race and d

education coordinator dr. diana hollinger explains how the unit cap will put many students in jeopardy. "it reeked havoc on us as a major. for music because our degrees most all of them are one hundred and thirty two units instead of one hundred and twenty. which means to graduate in four years you have to take sixteen to seventeen units a semester." students are wondering how they will be able to graduate in a timely fashion since they need other classes outside of their major. mikaela suhumaker says she may wind up missing out on classes that she loves. "you cant sign up for all of your ensembles because your first priority are your courses because you get your letter grade to graduate." the unit cap was put in to effect after the high enrollment of students in fall of 2012. students and faculty hope that this cap is only a temporary solution to the problem and that unit enrollment will go back to normal by fall of 2013." sjsu students for quality education are urging students who are upset with this decison to write an open letter to provost ellen junn. san jose state university has laun

'm committed to proper education of commissioners so when they come on board they get the information they need. i think the real challenge has been an issue of transparency, of leadership, of communication between the director of cultural affairs and the commissioners. and i mentioned in this a recommendation. the president and vice president and myself now have monthly meetings where we go through any detailed level policy issues, we prepare for commission meetings, we grapple with policy issues. so i'm dedicated to keeping that line of communication open. i think -- accountability. how does a governing body establish accountability. i've asked for a 360 performance review so commissioners are getting information about my performance from parties other than myself which will be important to assuring accountability. i think the commission is well aware that there have been challenges and on their watch they are responsible for the future of the arts commission. with these recommendations in mind we're moving forward. with the mayor's office we brought on two new commissioners, one is a chairma
